oh oh oh ... you are such a soul after my own heart ... love these so much ... especially the second image and how you captured the movement so gloriously!
... like a graceful dancer ...
or strands of hair sweeping past her face ...
lovely.

Gone in many ways, yet still so alive, the soul shining through... The last image really sings for me. :o) Such tender beauty... Happy Week, Elk ((HUGS))

yesterday i dusted a leaf i've had for years - i had to lacquer it after it dried, couldn't bear to let it go.

i knew there was a reason or two i liked you. :)

oh so beautiful
....like stories told
long after the time has
passed and the memory needs
fresh breath
in order to feed another soul.
I love this.
thanks,
Jennifer
